Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Exhibits at NYCC

Karl Erickson, director of New York's MoCCA - the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, had a table near Artist Alley so it was convenient to stop by and talk with him about the museum and its activities, which "showcase, discuss, archive, analyze, document and celebrate" comics and cartoons.

A major MoCCA happening is the annual MoCCA Festival, a 2-day event attracting fans, creators and publishers from around the world. Put April 9-10, 2011 on your calendar for MoCCA Fest!

There are 3 museums in the U.S. which focus on comics and cartoons. In addition to MoCAA, check out:

Toonseum in Pittsburgh/Joe Wos, executive director

Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco/Andrew Farago, curator
